Trek-Segafredo says one of its members has been taken to a hospital after going missing for several hours in northeastern Spain.
The team says director Steven De Jongh was ”conscious” after being found by authorities on Monday. It did not immediately give any other details.
De Jongh’s wife called for help on Twitter, saying her husband went missing after going on a morning ride near the city of Girona. She later said a helicopter found him, breathing, and with a pulse.
Twitter users used Strava to determine his last known location. Local emergency services were also notified.
De Jongh’s wife said on Twitter on Monday afternoon: “Thank you kind people, the helicopter has found Steven. More news later. He breaths and has a pulse.”
